For today, Josh took me north to New Hampshire, where he grew up (Maggie couldn’t attend). We visited the neighborhood where he spent his childhood. We also went to Hampton Beach to check out the sights and view the ocean. I tried some fried dough from Blink’s. It was good, just like fry bread in Arizona. We also played a few games at Playland Arcade, a haven for vintage arcade enthusiasts.
After a game or two (where the controller didn’t work for one of us), we satisfied our craving for seafood at Bob’s Clam Hut in Kittery (Josh’s recommendation, which was a great one). I had ANOTHER lobster roll with clam chowder and fries (he had some lobster chowder). We also split a basket of fried clams.
After eating, we drove to Portsmouth to walk around and check out the sights there. We stopped in several shops to see what was for sale. We also walked through Prescott Park to see the harbor.
After stopping for a drink (coffee and an italian soda), we returned to Gateway to Cape Cod to pick up Maggie for dinner. We chose Matt’s Blackboard Restaurant in Rochester. The decor was cozy, with delicious food (We shared a half grilled pizza. I had the French Dip with Caramelized Onions and Blue Cheese Butter. Maggie had the Wild Mushroom Ravioli in a Light Wine Sauce.) We will definitely be back here when we return. Sorry, but we ate it so fast that we didn’t get photos of our food. We then returned to the RV. Josh returned to his apartment.
